Since his return to the NBA, Michael Beasley has managed to provide consistent production for the Houston Rockets.

Though it may be too soon to measure his impact, forward Michael Beasley has been a positive force in his four games with the Houston Rockets in which he has averaged 13 points and 5 rebounds.

After averaging 32 points and being named the Chinese League MVP, Beasley decided to take his game to the Rockets– an organization that has struggled all season at the power forward position.

Having to alternate through an array of players at the power forward position this season, the Rockets have scrambled to find a single player who can remain healthy and fill the position.

Coming off the bench for the Rockets, Beasley has managed to provide instant offense, shooting 53% from the field.

Beasley’s offense has been a breath of fresh air for a Rockets bench who has often struggled to produce. In the four games he has played in a Rockets uniform, Beasley has proven that he is capable of scoring without the assistance of James Harden or Dwight Howard.

As long as Beasley continues to find ways to put the ball in the basket, I’m sure the Rockets will be forgiving of his long two-point attempts.
